World Works

 

Occasionally something happens that doesn't fit in any of the boxes...
- a 5Rhythms tent at a festival or an all-night ceremonial prayer dance; a convergence of socially/ecologically committed dancers for a massive street action; or an experimental trance-dance fusion with a group of San Bushmen dancers and healers...

One of the aims of dancingTao is to evolve and channel the energy of the dance in ways that connect to the manifest realities of our world. This comes from a perspective that dancing is not about escapism; the whole point is to keep moving, to grow with the rhythm - as nature does - and to connect with what's off the dancefloor as well as on it.

Current World Works:

Earthdreamers is a collective-led project bringing together ecstatic dance & shamanic practice with environmental, social & political activism. For more info go to earthdreamers.org
